I’ve been wanting to try some new eyeshadow palettes, ones that are on the cheaper side, without compromising on the quality. Obviously these being new to me brands, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but them being so cheap I really wanted to try and let everyone know my opinions.
One of the brands I came across was Cargo, and I’d be lying if i said I’d never come across this brand. I’ve seen It In TKmaxx before, but never tried it.
I was drawn to this palette because it had a good amount of neutral colours, but also had a few pops of colour. It’s also primarily cool toned colours, which I don’t tend to buy, so I though this was something I didn’t already have in my collection. I really liked the packaging, but thought it was a little misleading when comparing to the actual colours inside. I was expecting at least a purple to match, and maybe some more bright colours like a yellow.
It has 5 matte shades, all neutral colours, and 7 shimmer-shades, ranging from champagne, to brown, to blue and green.
A few of the matte shades are very sheer, but I don’t mind this too much, as they are good to use to set my eye base or as a transition shade. Most of the other shades swatch really nicely and have a good level of pigmentation.
One thing I have noticed is that the shimmers aren’t really shiny, they have a nice sparkly but not much of a pop. You also have to dip your brush a few times to get a good even colour across a larger area like the lid.
With all that being said though, I do really like this palette and find myself reaching for it very regularly. It’s an easy way to add a pop of colour or create an everyday eye look, and the colours are easy to use and reliable.
This palette also comes with a double ended brush, and a black pencil eyeliner. The brush seems decent quality, though I would have liked one end to be a bit fluffier. The pencil also seemed okay, though I don’t think it lasts very long in the waterline.
Having used this palette, I’m really intrigued to try any other palettes from this company.
I hope you enjoyed reading this post, have you tried anything from this company?
Until next time,
